Editoryal Jean Dominique, kote li analize repèkisyon vyolans elektoral 29 novanm 1987 la. Li nonmen anpil evènman vyolan ki te vini avan dat eleksyon an. Mwa novanm 1987 te wè anpil represyon toupatou nan peyi a: dife kriminèl, sakaj biwo vòt, biznis, baz pati politik, kay politisyèn, ak radyo. Jou 29 novanm 1987 la, lame anba KNGP a te kraze eleksyon yo, masakre moun ki te al vote Riyèl Vayan, epi tire sou Radyo Ayiti. Dominique mande kilès ki pwofite sou krim sa yo -- ansyen divalyeris tankou Clovis Désinor, Alphonse Lahens, ak Claude Raymond? Wi, men efè vag vyolans sa a te vin pi laj pase eleksyon yo, plis pase sa lame te prevwa: li te pouse yon eklatman anndan lame a, ki te kontribye ak yon seri koudeta nan fen ane 1980 yo, epi li afekte legliz katolik la (ak eklatman lè Salezyen yo te voye Aristide ale). Li te montre mantalite makoutis la te toujou la epi ke makoutis yo pa t sou ni pataj ni sou rekonsilyasyon, men li te montre tou echèk makoutis la.
Jean Dominique's editorial analyzing the legacy of the November 29, 1987 electoral violence. He enumerates many violent events that preceded the actual election day. November 1987 saw widespread repression throughout the country: arson, pillaging of electoral bureaus, businesses, headquarters of political parties, homes of politicians, and radio stations. On November 29, 1987, the army under the CNG violently crushed the elections, massacred civilians at the voting station at Ruelle Vaillant, and shot up Radio Haiti. Dominique asks who benefits from all these crimes -- old Duvalierists like Clovis Désinor, Alphonse Lahens, and Claude Raymond? Yes, but the effects of this wave of violence extended beyond elections in ways the army did not foresee: it caused a rupture within the army which contributed to the series of coups in the late 1980s, and affected the Catholic Church (and the rupture that occurred with Aristide's expulsion from the Salesian order). It demonstrated that Macoutism was still alive and could not be compromised or reconciled with, but ultimately demonstrated the failure of Macoutism.
